Hillsborough School Board approves new boundaries in five single-member districts

Five single-member districts of the Hillsborough County School Board will have new boundaries next year, pending approval by the U.S. Department of Justice.

The school district had to redraw the lines to even out differences in population that showed up in the 2010 census. Growth in eastern Hillsborough had placed too many voters in District 4, now represented by Stacy White, and not enough in districts 1 and 5, with seats now held by Susan Valdes and Doretha Edgecomb.

The boundaries approved at Tuesday's board meeting give some neighborhoods in District 4 to northern Hillsborough's District 3, represented by Jack Lamb. Lamb, in turn, will lose some constituents in Keystone and Odessa to Valdes' District 1. Candy Olson represents District 2, and April Griffin and Carol Kurdell are countywide representatives.
